By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 08:00 am:

Okay, my computer says 8:00 but not according to pasty!!

Anyway, have a great weekend!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 08:06 am:

If your computer says 8:00, then you need to come back to Central Time Zone there Deb; mine still says 7:06!! J

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 08:11 am:

HaHa!! I meant central time, silly!

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 09:48 am:

A little late this morning due to some lightning complications here in the Keweenaw.

Since I've been going from the wee hours this a.m., hope it's OK if I give myself the Early Bird.
First Post (not)

By David (Dave) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 10:21 am:

Looks like some storms are moving through the Copper Country.

By Pat & Glenda (Gormfrog) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 12:28 pm:

That this "Early Bird" exists is a matter of faith, and so infallible.
How it exists and presents itself each day is a matter of Reason, therefore various and perplexed.
Good job Charlie!

The Dream Cruise is ramping up, dudes and dudettes.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 01:23 pm:

...nice pics, by the way. The 2009 photo looks like a weak Tahquamenon Falls.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 01:26 pm:

Good slideshow. I wondered what happened with the early bird contest. Anyway, glad everything's okay. My wife and I spend yesterday at Mackinac Island, first time in about 4 years. One of my favorite stops, the Butterfly House, has been renovated, and they have a store downtown.

By Donna (Donna) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 03:10 pm:

Got a cousin giving me updates on the Dream Cruise...sounds pretty incredible.

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 03:57 pm:

Yeah, Im taking my medical van thru the dream cruise too! just kidding.... but I do love to see all the Mustangs!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 04:25 pm:

You guys (and ladies) are making me jealous not being able to cruise up and down Woodward this evening with the Bird.....

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 04:26 pm: has turned into quite an incredible event. Over ten miles of nothing but classic cars. Any car that you can imagine from muscle cars to exotic sports cars, old-old classics like Model Ts, etc. and then there is that unique class of vehicle, like U.C. will be driving, or should I say chauffeured in. The tricked-out, pimp-my-ride ambulance :)’s the recovery coming along? I hope your trigger finger hasn't been affected.

By Hollidays (Hollybranches) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 04:37 pm:

Charlie, well deserved early bird. Highly doubt if anyone will debate over that one, or will they?
Speaking of classic cars; They are plentiful in the Ontonagon County. Never saw so many "cherry" 1957, 327s. That was a classic ride. I will never forget my 1968 GTO, 400, 4 barrel, 4 speed. That was a car.

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 05:06 pm:

Alex, doing good, thanks. Back to the real world next week, get checked out on Tues. at the doc's office, starting to eat real food today, slowly as to not get anything upset or irritated.

Trigger finger, Brother Mike, nephew Ben and my friend Marty are the real hunters, I cook sometimes, but I do bring my 44 magnum pistol to target shoot and I buy a license to support the state. I'd rather see if we can drown Marty's 4x4 at the beaver dam at Keystone Bay and do all kinds of truckin thru the woods and sight seeing. I just like to get away and be at Little Betsy and of course it wouldn't be complete without a trip to the •••••• in Baraga to honnor my dad (grampa Norm)and make a donation or two or three,lol. Then there's all the favorite haunts for some great food and cold ones. We also visit with my aunt & uncle, Tem & Virginia Ahonen. Tem come's down to the camp as well.

Lastly, my truck is full of equipment to sell to the Homecare dealers and Hospitals thru out the state, not EMS. Mary's seen it when I gave her a wheelchair for her adult care.

geeze, board Friday, didn't mean to get so chatty. Those going to the cruise, have a great time and LIGHT EM UP! (tires)

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 05:10 pm:

Actually, the 1957 Chevy Bel-Air came with either a straight six or a 283 V-8 engine in various forms; the 327 wasn't introduced until 1962.

I'm still jealous I can't be in Motown though. I have 3 perfect vehicles to "light em' up" these days, but only one is truly fitting to be in the Dream Cruise. One of these years the Dr. and I will make it with the Bird for the Cruise, although we keep our fingers crossed that we might not be that far away someday!! ;-)

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 05:22 pm:

Back in the day when Bob and I had our '68 Shelby GT500, red with white LeMans stripes, powered by the factory Ford 427 side oiler, we would drive to Dearborn Heights to the Shelby/Ford owners club of America. Was a great time. Our Shelby always was judged the 1st place in it's class among 35 other contestants. Had to stop to fill it up every 75 miles.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 05:29 pm:

Capt, Bob and I once owned a couple birds...a yellow 1970 Superbird, had a 440 sixpack. And a 1969 RoadRunner, B5 blue, white buckets, 383 V-8 Coyote Duster Ram Air, factory AM-8track. A friend of Bob's always said GTO, stood for Garbage Taken Out.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 08:38 pm:

I hear ya Janie; my 68 Roadrunner can be a thirsty ride, especially when one puts their foot into it!! Although I can make 180-200 miles on a tank if I'm on a long cruise at 70 or so.

A yellow Superbird 6-pack, mmmmmmmm!!!! I got to drive one once with a Hemi in it; what a ride as I'm sure Mikie would attest to. So, how many of those were "tested" at the Lynch Road plant?? ;-)

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 08:46 pm:

When I was 17, I wanted to buy a '69 GTO and my dad said in his Scottish brogue "Och awa, are ya oot yer heed? Yul kill yoursel." ...and he was probably right.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, August 19, 2011 - 10:29 pm:

Just got back in to watch the slideshow!! I bet you wouldn't have guessed that I love the old picture of Lake Linden. And the one above Lake Linden is great too. Mary, I do believe I can see your house :) I can also see the street leading up to my mom's place. Memories......

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Saturday, August 20, 2011 - 12:42 am:

JT- Shelby GT500, now that was a car! My favorite!

I did have a 1970 Mach I, with a 351 Cleveland, 750 dual feed Holly 4 barrel carb, went thru many sets of tires and speeding tickets when I was 16. It had alot of miles on it when I bought it, but the original owner said it would turn high 13's in the quarter mile at Detroit Dragway, not sure if he was telling me the truth or not, I just knew I had to have it!
Now I drive a cargo van, but my driving record is clean! lol

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Saturday, August 20, 2011 - 12:47 am:

Alex, I almost did kill myself in my Mustang, a few times. If I'd only known then, what I know now. We were crazy! Glad my son drives an SUV.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Saturday, August 20, 2011 - 05:46 am:

U.C.... Bob and I also owned a '66 and a '70 Shelby GT 350's, a '70 Boss 302, a '71 Mach 1, a '69 Mach 1, '67 Fairlane GT's, '66 and 67 Cyclone GT's, and about 150 other various muscle cars! If we still had all those cars today, our driveway could have been the Woodward Dream Cruise! lol!

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Sunday, August 21, 2011 - 12:54 pm:

I worked at the Lynch Road plant until it was closed. Saw many of the super cars that we built on the rollers. They would put the rear wheels on these giant rollers and rev them up. Used to be able to hear the big engines rev up over most of the plant. I had a hemi in a 1965 Cornet convertible. Loved that car. My little old aunt, probably about fifty then, bought it when I went into the army. I can just see her tooling around Georgia in it. She drove it till her grandson got hold of it. Spent yesterday watching the cars on Woodward. My buddy Larry and I spent most of our teen years on Woodward cruising. Now he is in a scooter, and I use a walker. Still cruise the "Strip" tho.
